Art of Music 10 year anniversary concert on 30th November

Founded in 2009, The Art of Music has been in existence to promote the performance and appreciation of art music in Kenya and use it’s transformative power to change lives, particularly of those living in underprivileged areas of the country.

The focuses is on two programmes. Firstly, Ghetto Classics, a community programme that involves over 500 children in Korogocho and thousands more in satellite areas around Nairobi, Kiambu and Mombasa through the Link UP project. The second is a musical and leadership training programme, The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya (KNYO). This is a music ensemble that brings together talented young musicians from all walks of life in the country.

These programmes have been generously supported through donations from individuals and organisations that believe that “Making Music can Make A Difference.”

The discipline, teamwork, focus and commitment that the children learn from being musicians and playing in an orchestra has translated to their school and home lives, making Ghetto Classics and KNYO students stand out above the rest. There has been an improvement in grades and this is particularly so in the Korogocho programme as all the children are self-motivated to stay in school and are assisted with their fees when necessary.

These students have had their horizons widened because of the exposure that they have gained. They have played with children from totally different backgrounds and they have had outstanding experiences in concerts that they have been a part of, or watched. They have also traveled to different places in the world with some going out to as far as the United States and Europe to perform with other musicians. All these wonderful opportunities have come, thanks to music.

On the 30th November 2019, The Art of Music will be holding their 10-year anniversary fundraising concert featuring Ghetto Classics, The National Youth Orchestra of Kenya (KNYO) and the Safaricom Youth Orchestra alongside, Polish composer JIMEK and the Swiss Mexican pianist Jorge Viladoms, who have both generously donated their time and expertise to be part of this concert.

The tickets cost 10.000Ksh per person and includes dinner. It will be held at the Trademark Hotel.

Gospel artist Willy Paul releases music video with nvde models

Willy Paul has for long refused to state whether he is still singing gospel music but I think we can safely say he is into secular music with his new move.

Marry Willy Paul – Fans call out Kush Tracey for wearing booty shorts

The man has pulled a Sauti Sol and decided to do a music video that will feature nvde women in it. I know Ezekiel Mutua must already be seething and frothing.

The ‘Hallelujah’ singer teased the video of his new song called ‘Bure Kabisa’ a reveal that shocked most people. His caption for the song read;

THE BEAUTY OF THE EYE CAN BE SO DECEIVING, INSIDE NI BURE KABISA!!! NEW SONG LINK IN BIO

I can’t post the link here but all I can say is that even Jamaican and Black American artists will be blushing when they see the nvdity on the song. Go to his page and see it before it’s pulled down!

mercy_de_cute mbona wapo uchi😢😢😢😢😢😢

Even though I want to hype the music video, I think this whole affair is much ado about nothing. My hunch is that Willy super-imposed his ‘Bure Kabisa’ audio on the video with his intention being to garner as much publicity as possible for the song’s debut. The song most likely has another family-friendly video.

‘He tries to be like Michael Jackson!’ MCA Tricky compliments Diamond (Exclusive)

I recently spoke to MCA Tricky and the comedian was very forthright about some certain aspects in his life. The comedian whose fanbase is rapidly growing is currently on a tour in many counties in Kenya.

Mr. Tricky admitted that he doesn’t compete with any person in the comedy industry. How could that be considering that there are bigger names in the industry like Churchill and Eric Omondi? He said that he felt that he needed to push himself by growing his brand and that only happens if he keeps on interacting with his audience.

The comedian said that he admired himself in the comedy industry. His reason for the humblebrag was that he learns something from each and every other comedian in his industry.

But the artiste explained that he did have someone that he looks up to in life. Who could that be? ‘I admire Diamond the most in life. That guy is daring. He believes he is a Michael Jackson even though he can’t match those heights but he still tries to do it,’ said the entertainer.

And how did he have such a great estimation of the Tanzanian singer? Had they met? The comic said that they had met a few times and although they weren’t deep conversations, one could see the work ethic Diamond had.

Zari says Diamond has not seen his kids for 9 months!

And who did he support between Diamond or Zari considering he has also engaged with Zari in the past and that the two exes have been engaged in a nasty back and forth the past few months? MCA was very diplomatic in his answer saying that he did not mind supporting Diamond as he and Diamond had similar dreams.

He used to give us small amounts – Wendy Waeni’s mother says about manager

Wendy Waeni was all over the news last week after her famous interview on JKL live. The famous gymnast shocked many viewers when she claimed that her ex-manager, Joe Mwangi wasn’t doing right by her and her mother.

Wendy had claimed that she hadn’t received money for performances she had done from her manager. She also alleged that he had also taken possession of her social media accounts refusing to relinquish them.

Magdaline Syombua was with Wendy Waeni in the Radio Jambo studio on Monday and explained that she used to receive small amounts of money from her daughter’s ex-manager, Joe Mwangi.

Wendy Waeni’s mother allegedly threatened after Jeff Koinange interview

Syombua said Mwangi used to go with Waeni to events and even meet up with politicians who would give them tokens such as money. She told host Massawe Jappani;

I am very proud of my daughter and happy about it, but I am disappointed she never used to get what she duly deserved. Some time back, they used to go out together for events, they would even meet up with honourables who would give them money. So he used to give me small amounts, like KSh 20,000, then he would keep the lion’s share.

Wendy’s mother claimed that Joe would get angry whenever she would ask her about the rest of the money. Her admission somewhat contradicts Wendy’s claim that she never received a cent from Mwangi despite having travelled the world for several shows.

Her sentiments were echoed by her mum who said the ex-manager took all the money Waeni used to make during her shows. But Joe in a quick and tough rejoinder while being interviewed on Chipukeezy’s show on Ebru T.V denied the claims, saying that he only travelled out of the country once with Wendy.

And that was to Rwanda where he claims he received only Ksh. 100k from the mother.

‘I have been digging an early grave!’ Akothee’s emotional message

Akothee is one woman who inspires many women and girls alike.

Her ‘take no prisoners’, ‘gung ho’ and ‘my way or the highway’ attitude have earned her many fans and critics alike.

What impresses many about the single mother of 5 is her will to not only survive but also thrive and make it against all odds. Which she has done splendidly!

But it seems that even the iron lady is proving that she might be human too! She recently posted a cryptic message on her Instagram page detailing how she needed to take a break. She wrote yesterday that her Cologne show would be her last ‘due to very sensitive issues within my organization’.

She added that she needed to fix herself first because she felt that if she didn’t take that radical step that she would lose everything as a mother, an artist, an entrepreneur, an entertainer, and as a mentor.

She went on to say that she could not motivate her followers if she was broken and down. The singer also went to explain that the trip to Europe had been eye-opening for her as she realized that the path she was on would lead her to an early grave.

She, however, showed that her fighting spirit was still indomitable saying that she would take the hiatus to fix her troubles. Could the enterprising singer be a victim of burn out as she alluded to in her post?

Akothee complains about being a single mother

Richest local singer Akothee is busy helping her children discover their talents while some are sleeping on their jobs as their children trend for all the wrong reasons, #IfikieWazazi.

Yesterday, Akothee was one of the guests on the decorated 10over10 show hosted by Willis Raburu and Joey Muthengi on Citizen TV.

Akothee-and-manager

The mother of five attended the show attended with her three daughters and apart from promoting her new song Oyoyo, they talked about other things including advising the youth and single mothers out here.

Akothee
Akothee with her children during an interview

Akothee the self-proclaimed president of single mothers, is a proud single parent and always showers responsible fathers with praises.

Also, read:

‘I wish all fathers were very responsible like your Dad,’ Akothee showers mzungu baby daddy with love on son’s birthday

In a lengthy post she shared on social media, Akothee has narrated how she struggled to make ends meet and schooled her children on her own when their father wasn’t supportive.

“Bangaizaring with my uterus. Make your children your friends, let them see your struggles, share with them your sad and beautiful moments. They are the ones you are hustling for! Introduce them to the world before the world introduces itself to them! The world is cruel. I have come this far on my own! Without their father’s support and we are rocking private schools wanawake tunaweza hatuwezi?’ she wrote in part.

Akothee went ahead to advise single women to work hard fight for their children as mothers are the pillars of the society.

“Stop sympathizing with yourself and start working towards healing, get your energy back and fight for your life and your loved ones.  Vesha Shaillan, Rue Baby and Fancy Makadia, thanks for the company. Any man who isn’t proud of you in public doesn’t deserve you in private, any behind the scene relationship has a dead end! Rejection feels soo bad and make you empty, tell me your fears I am here my love. I know I can’t fulfil all your desires, but your money is your first husband, work towards it. The rest will fall in place. Boys are available, husbands are rarely found, Iest you end up like your mom with 5 children and 3 father’s!, it’s not fun or easy just making fun out of it because I have accepted my status be patient 😂😂😂😂😂, being a single mother is like EBOLA or leprosy.”

Celebrity Dj Pierra Makena shocks Kenyans after revealing her age

Pierra Makena is one of the few Kenyan female Dj’s who is well-known and has a following.  The curvy Dj has been secretive about her age, making sure that suspicion and speculation is all there is when it comes to what her age is. But not anymore.

It’s rare to find a celebrity who can tell their real age, especially on this continent. From footballers to socialites, most of them never age and are always sweet 18, 20 0r 24. Bodacious DJ Pierra Makena has revealed her age and Kenyans are shocked.

Pierra Makena

The former Tahidi High actor and mother of one just clocked 37 years old. Yes! Pierra Makena is 37 but wait, she doesn’t look like her real age.

“About to rock this 37!!!!!👸😋 Happy bornday indeed
#BEYOU,” read the heavily endowed DJ’s message.

 Well, Celina, a fellow actor also wished Pierra Makena a happy birthday and also had a message to body shamers.

Wacheni umbea! Mr. Nice speaks of about HIV status

Mr. Nice was one of the first Tanzanian artists to make it on the Kenyan entertainment scene. We enjoyed and reveled in his glorious ballads. But things took a turn for the worse with his nasty fall from grace.

Worse was the rumour that was perpetuated that he was HIV positive. However, speaking to E-news on EATV the singer opened up addressing the rumour that has been going rounds for years now.

Mr. Nice

He is adamant that he has the virus and says that it was vicious people who started the lie. According to the singer, the rumor was started back in 2002 by random people looking out to destroy his career.

In his defense he says that people who were HIV positive back then have been dead and buried a long time ago! He said:

“Rumour-mongers have been claiming am HIV positive since 2002. I think I should be dead by now if I was HIV positive since then, but here I am.”

Mr. Nice

He also added that his loyal fans had supported him throughout despite the damaging accusation. My fans do not give me headaches with the baseless rumours. He finished:

“They always say that they know me and cannot be misled with the false claims. My enemies are behind the HIV rumours because they’ve tried to bring me down with a number of things including marijuana and women in vain.

Am just so grateful if I start stating why I might not stop. But A thankyou to my Family friends and my Fans and most importantly God ni Lazima… .
ZaGa⚡

The artiste, who is the CEO of Pacho Entertainment believes in real progress and not faking it. In a recent interview with The Star, he opened up on the same.

“I have asked asked myself this question over and over again. My progress is based on my legit numbers, I can see the growth. Is it that the industry is unfair or guys just wanna look like winners out here but don’t wanna put in work? I was like, how come I don’t hear the song around as much and the artiste ain’t that big, but the numbers are crazy high? Anyway you can lie to everyone else but you can never lie to yourself. Or maybe I am just taking this music too seriously…” he said.

And true to his word, he has stuck to his word.

This is what fans had to say for his birthday:

Kagwe Mungai Just Dropped The Biggest Song of 2018

Cool kid Kagwe Mungai has just dropped a brand new, hot love song titled “Till The End”. The groovy jam features fast-rising Nigerian singer Niniola.

For those of you who don’t know, Niniola won the Soundcity Best Female MVP award (2018) as the Best Male MVP award went to Diamond Platnumz. The visuals to the song are dope; I must say that Kagwe has reached the international standard he’s always hoped for.

The song is irresistibly dope and both artistes delivered to the maximum. Kagwe’s musical journey has been interesting. He did not start off in the streets like many of his Kenyan counterparts. The “Creeper” crooner actually studied music.

In a July 2017 interview with Nomad Magazine, the singer opened up about his background.

“My Mum says I used to sing myself to sleep. At the end of 2009, I went to Southampton to study Music Production and Operations Management. In High School, I had been a bit of a rock star, and then I went there and was the bottom of the barrel and met people who were so much better than me. I had to reinvent, grow, start again, and that forced me to hone in on my production. By the second year, I was tutoring; the third year I was in production and I found my group of friends that were from all over the world, which was such an amazing experience and the main reason I wanted to study abroad. I did a lot of growing in those three and a half years, travelled to a lot of open mics and tested my material. I got booed at a Kenyan event in Coventry. I was the last one to perform and people had eaten nyama choma and started chanting “Go home!” over and over again. My Mum taught me a long time ago you can’t ever run away from a fight, whatever that fight is, especially if the fight is brought to you. So I just told the DJ to keep going and kept singing.”

As for the music, it keeps getting better. Just listen to “Till The End”

It’s like Willy Paul is drifting further and further from gospel. Remember when he sang “Sitolia” and got many people having feels? Well, those days are gone. These days, he’s all about scandals with girls and singing about girls.

From “Tempted” to “JigiJigi”, this dude seems to have lost it.

Well, that’s what the fans feel too. In a recent interview with Pulse, the singer revealed that he once wanted to sleep with both Huddah and Vera.

“From what I know now, Huddah and Vera are beautiful. I once used to have this urge for both of them but that is not the case anymore,” he said unapologetically.

From the comments on some of the Instagram posts promoting the release, it seems that fans are finally fed up. The song, dubbed “Malingo” is aimed at girls who have been rejecting him.

Rayvanny Making Moves As He Drops Collaboration With Jason Derulo!

WCB’s Rayvanny has just made a huge wave as he jumped on to Jason Derulo’s remix to “Tip Toe” ft. French Montana.

The Tanzanian crooner took to Instagram to share the great news, amidst lots of anxiety amongst his fans.

In the song, Rayvanny sticks to his Swahili roots but employs a dance-hall feel to the song.

Beef Alert! Bongo singer Rayvanny sparks split rumors with his baby mama

The original music video features exotic scenes of beautiful women dancing to the song, or modeling in nude art. The theme of the video had some Arab influence, especially with French Montana’s part.

Could this be the reason Rayvanny jumped on to the track? In the past, he has admitted to loving Kenyan ladies because they are “women who are an exotic mix of what looks like Arabic blood, Rwandese blood and other ethnic groups.”

Whether or not that was the influence, I must admit that this song is really fire. Check it out.
